Finding Winnie, by Lindsay Mattick & Sophie Blackall
- Author: Lindsay Mattick
- Illustrator: Sophie Blackall
In 1914, Harry Colebourn, a veterinarian who was on his way to tend to horses in World War I, followed his heart and wound up rescuing a baby bear. He named her Winnie, after his hometown of Winnipeg, and took the bear to war.
Harry Colebourn's great-granddaughter shares the remarkable true story of friendship and their journey from the fields of Canada to a convoy across the ocean to an army base in England.
Finally, their journey took them to the London Zoo, where Winnie encountered another new friend, a real boy named Christopher Robin.
Before there was Winnie-the-Pooh, there was a real bear named Winnie, and she was a girl!
